let's hear it for hillary

Let's hear it for Hillary. Her historic motion on the floor of the DNC, where she made the motion to nominate Barack Obama by acclamation, was a classy move. She did not get what she wanted out of this race, but she took what she was dealt and handled everything with dignity, grace and courage. Far better in defeat, Hillary rose to the occasion and earned her place in the history books.

The cynical might say she was saving her own political future, but I think she was sincere. If she can't be the one in office, she really will do everything to see that the next best choice (in her eyes) does win. I think Hillary cares deeply about the future of America. And she really is fearful of what a McCain presidency could bring. Four more years to drive the economy down, increase the gap between rich and poor, and lower our stature in the world even further.

I hope that people heard the words this week, and took them to heart. No how, no way, no McCain!
